when the flrat Juror appeared at the 
rear door of the Court House, tnose

had a verdict for there was a differ-

When the vprdict was read all e yes 
in the court room turned to ibe de- 
fendant who would soon have to pay 
the penalty with his life. He had been 
v«ry nervoua the -moat of the morning 
but now he did not iwpear much boib- 
ered He did not break do^n aa many 
prisoners have done when the death 
penalty was pronounced upon them 
but looked toward the floor as he 
struck his hands together camly. His 
old mother, sitting by his side, who 
has always been with him during the 
trial. «avc way to her feelings and 
pried but the doomed nan did not 

slied a tear. 

The jury, wbieh breaks all recent 
records for tlie leniAtli of time they 
held the case, was first Klven the pasp 
at G:30 Thursday night. Although' 
Prosecutor Orannis closed his address 
Thursday afternoon It was about sup- 
per time when he flnlsbed and Judge 
Newell let the Jury go to their supper 
before he gave them the case. After 
wrestling with the case until after 9 
o'clock at night and being unable to 
reach a verdict, tbey were looked up 
for the night and came back at 9 
o'clock yesterday morning. 

After being in their room for an 
hour and ten nilnntes, the jury caine 
down and Foreman Sliank'.iii inform- 
ed the emirl tliat tlioy were uiialdi' 
to auree as Ki Ibe dpgree of punish- 
ment. He said they had afireed as lo 
the guilt of the defendant but were 
unable to come together on Ibe pen- 
alty. Judge Newell sent the jury 
back. They were taken to lunch in 
a body yesterday at noon and about 3 
o'clock yesterdays afternoon they 
again rang and were ushered into 
court. Mr. Sbanklln again reported 
that they were still unable to agree 
on the degree of punislunent but 
Judge Newell again sent tbem' to their 
room and in thirty minutes they came 
In with the verdict. 

It is understood that the jury at all 
times stood 10 to 2 In favor of the 
death penalty but the two men who 
were holding out for life iiiiprison- 
ment in the penitentiary were bard to 
ehange but Anally camp over to the 
opinion and decision of the majority 
of the jury. 

This is the arst wilful murder case 
to be tried in the IVlason Circuit Court 
since the trial ot the Smith brothers, 
who wera also sentsnoed to the elec- 
tric ebair and is almost as brutal as 
the murder for whiob tbey were sen- 
tenced although it baa since been 
learned that tlif Smiths wars respon- 
sible for several murders in this 
section.

Harris will not be sentenced by 
Judge Newell until toward the close 
of the present term of court when the 
date of his execution will also be fix-

More .Intereat was created in the

PBX8IDENT WILSON FOR WAK-TIip SCHOOLS 

rrpsident 'Wnsoii iirfn-s >;i'ii(>roiis support, for schools of \ll 
grades during war time. In a lottor to Secretary liniie approving' 
the Biir<«a"of Edncation's plan for^an edueatiofial campaign this 
auvHner and fajl he says : 

"I am {)ka*ed to know that despite the unusual Imrdens imposed 
upon our peOpte by the war they have maintained their seiiools and 
other agejieies of oduealion so nearly at their normal ofBciency. That 
this should be eontinut d IhiouRhout the war and that, in so far as 
the selection law will pi rniit, there should he no falling off in .Ic 
mentary schools, high schools or colleges is a matter of the ver\ 
greatest importance, affecting both onr strength in war and our nn 
tional welfare and (.nicit iu-y win n the wiir is over. So lonp as tlie 
war continues there will be constant need of very large numbers of 
men and women of the highest and most thorough training for war 
berviee in iniuiy liii. s. After the war there will "be urgent need not 
only for trained lend, rsliip in all lines of industrial, eommeroial, so- 
cial and cjivic life, but for a very high average ..r intdli-. ,ir,. ami 
preparation on the part of all the people. I jvouIiT therefore urge 
that the people continue to give generous support to their schools 
of all grades and that the schools adjust themselves as wisely as 
possible to the new condicitions to the end that no boy or girl shall 
have less opportunity for education because of the war and that the 
nation may be strengllu'iud as it can only !).• through the right of 
education of all its people. I ai)prove mo.st heartily your plans for 
making through the Bureau 'of Education a comprehensive eain. 
paign for the support of the schools and for the maintenance of al- 
tendance upon them, and trust that you may have the co-operation in 
this work of the American Council of Education." 

These words indeed ring true, especially at this time. The vaca- 
tions from school and college this summer have been'taken up for 
the greater part by young people ciii-Mt-'ini; themselves in mills, 
sho^ ofHces and on the farm. This has shown a splendid patriotic 
spirit on the part of the young people and they may feel that theii 
time has been well spent to help win the war, 

"» But they should guard against that great temptation which 
now arises, of remaining at their work in preference to returning 
to their stu.lics. True, they may be makiu-,' (lood wages and their 
employers would be glad to see them remain at their work, but the 
young people shoulS^be aided by their elders in looking into Mu- 
future to analyze the, years that arc to come. What seems like 
good pay for services renderecUnow, in after years would be meager 
indeed when added responsibilities |)ile up, and then, even whi'ii it is 
too late, they will be awakened to the fact that Hieir continuanee 
at4heir studies wtftild have placed them in line for the better things 
. that this world has in store for those who prepare their minds to 
^Ive its problems. 

So, if these lines should fall to the attention of one who is 
wavering between retiirninf; to school or continuing at his or her 
summer task, we would say most emphatieally to that one — return 
to BCbool., You will never regret it.

young men are disqualified for service on account of physical de- 
bility. Much of this unfitness comes from malnutrition. In this 
connection the board furnishes table* showing yrhat the lieight an<l 
weight of children should be at certain ages. For instance, a boy of 
10 should be iii( lirs liiirli and wcifrli 77 poimds. .\ -girl of the 
same age should be 54 inches high and wcigii 7(1 |)ounds. Similar 
figures are given for children of all ages from 5 to 18. The id>'a 
of these figures is to inform the parents by obtaining the height 
j,nd weight of theor children whether they have sufficiently and in- 
telligently fed or not. 

This is reducing the nutrition of children to a seientic scale, 
but it is to be doubted Sf many parents are patient and intelligent 
enough to ascertain these facts. Too many t;o iii>i'ii the idea that 
feeding a boy all he will eat is increasing his strength, and of course 
they want their children strong, yever thinking for. a moment that 
overfeeding is quite as disastrous as underfeeding. If the parents 
of this country would appreciate that fact, many of the boys would 
rot be denied the privilege of serving their country because they 
were physically unfit. 

/ ' ^THE WAY or BEAUTY 



For just as mortality consists not in doing this or that, but rath- 
ei; the way in wliieh an act is done and the spirit of it, so Meaiity is 
to be found not in the drawing of great subjects, but in the v/ay in 
wfaiofi any subject, however humble. Is drawn ; a sprig of wild black- 
berry, by Ticonardo. a slrawberi-y i)lant in the foregronnd of Cima's 
pietui'e, the wayside grasses of Duerer's drawings, are beautiful by 
tbe^sauie token as in the "Birth of Tenna'' of the "Marriage of St. 
Catherine." 

Not all one'% war sacrifices are known to the general piiblio but 
they are no leas eommendable on this aooonnt and a ragged hole in 
one's undershirt, or'no undQnhirt at all for that matter, is just as 
laach a badgg of honor aa the most oonspiouous patch op the pants, 
if, in point of fact, it is not an added inerit thns to hide one's light 
under a bushel. ' 

No new grounds for divorae, alimony or complete legal separa- 
tion develop at onr honae yesterday, so far as we know, and appar.

(lupnoy the Kaispr is beginninfl to 
whine dolorously It is quite a differ- 
ent story, this dropping of air bombs, 
now that the sho^ is on the other 
foot. It was line business when tlie 
Germans had - a monopoly.* 

Every time one of these centers of

lied bombing party the aKIser makes 
liaste-ti convey bis august sympathy 
to his nerve shattered sulijpcis and 
Incidentally to bewail llip allied bru-

Both Germany mid the Kaiser are 
beginning to (eel the gaff. \ 
And neither like It. 
What both have experienced to date 
is but a foretaste of what Is yet to

It will not be many months until Oer-

the defensive. 

When that time comes the raiding; 
of London and the KuKiish coast

And the naval centers as Kiel and Zo- 
bruggs, the Krupp munitions work at 
Essen, and the several airplane sta- 
tions hiaU. ri l from Lake Constance 
to the liollunU border, will all be fair 
game. 

The vials of allied wrath will de- 
scend upon Germany from the heav-

appeased Germany will be cursing tbe 
dsy'Hhat the first Zeppelin was Sent

If need be, to this ureal cause. 

The unique and snperli part tiiis

death struggle of KlngdomB and Em-

Bays Hon. Wesley Ailains of the New 
Hampshire State Grange. 

".Never before was the farmer call- 
ed upon to produce os much nor under 
uch conditions although he has al- 
ways been noted for. his patriotic Im- 
pulses, and In this terrible crisis he 
is lying up to all previous hstory: to 

0 this he Is forcing his farm to pro- 
duce food as never before notwith- 
standing that 40l),000 of experienced 
farm hands have been called to the 
front since the hc^inninK of ti\e war. 

TliereTorc. while he always in limes 
of peace deserves a Kood road, he is 
now entitled to the best that can be 
bad. Tills is necessary in the trans- 
iKirialion of bis supplies to his farm, 
and in the movement of his crop to the 
near-by village or city which, at least 
in these times should be the real mar- 
ket. 

The large amount of munitions 
'Which our railroads are called upon 
to transport makes It Important that 
the auto truck be psed to the ntmosl 
in the transporting of farm products 
A large amount of these products 
must of neccslty l)e raised off the 
truck lines. Last fail I saw a truck 

1 drive itito the si|uare in front of Fan- 
' enil Hall .\laikei, loaded with 27fi 

box.'H of aiiplcs I found these had 
j been driven over the road a distance 
of :!4 milcK takins tliem direct from 
file farm to tlic door of the market. 
1 recall this by way of illustration of 
that can be done on good roads with 
the truck. • 

One of the greatest needs of the 
day, of which I want to speak, is the 
saving of time. We hear. of \Arlous 
methods of conserving time, even to 
changing our clocks and It is all time- 
ly discussion and is of v'^tal import- 
luce to the farmer, for. as I st.-ited in 
the bejjiniilus the drain of labor from 
the farm has bet'ii enornuius. ne of 
Ibe sources tliroufjh whicli the farmer 
(oiild save valuable time woul^ be 
lietter country roads. 

"Tims i-'entlemen. in summing Up 
these brief remarks, there are five 
reasons wbieli I believe show the ef- 
fect of the war on our countr roads, 
and the need for better country roads: 
"1— The larger production on all 
farms. 

"2— To furnish all the relief possi- 
ble fof the already overworked rail- 
roads. 

"3— The automblle and auto truck 
as means of quick and sure delivery of 
farm products. 

"4 — Better country roads would en- 
able the farmer to save in time 
in travel on the road.

STANLEY CHOSEN 

mmmm 

FOR SENATOR 

Name of Kentucky's (JoTcmor floes 
nn (he Ilnllot In I'lace of tlio I/at« 
Senator James as Democnitir 
CMiilftite. 

The Democratic State, Central and 
Eiecullve Committees, Chairman 
Charles A. Hanlln, of Harrldsburg, 
nvRslding, and all 'members present 

3ith the exception of Shelley D. 
ouse, of Covington, resigned, met 
at LooltviUe Thursday, adopted reso- 
lutions on tbe death of United States 
Senator Ollie M. JTamee; named Gov- 
ernor A. O. Stanley as the Democratic 
nominee for United States Senator for 
the term of six years beginning March 
4. linn, and chose ThomSs 8. Rhea, of 
Hussellvlllc. former State Treasurer, 
as Cliairmnn of the Campaign Com- 
niillec. which he will name later. 

Tlie sentiment of the committees 
\vas against the holdlnR of either a 
delegate convention or primary elec- 
tion for the purpoe of making the 
senatorial nomination. 

^tate Bxeoutive Committeeman Wil- 
liam D. Hind, of Covington, was the 
only man of the 28 voting who re- 
corded a negative expression to the 
resolution Introduced by. Bxecutive 
Comiditteeman Joe B. Robinson, of 
Lancaster, calling for the nomination 
of Governor Stanley by the two com- 
mittees sitting jointly as a conven- 
tion. 

.Tudse William A. Youilg, Executive 
("oniniilleeman from the Ninth Ills- 
Iricl. spoke In favor of delay In mak- 
ini; the uoniinallou of fioveruor Stan- 
ley, declaring himself "for him first, 
last and all the time." but there was 
no second to his motion. Executive 
Committeeman W. F. Klalr, cf Lex- 
ington, speaking upon Judge Young's 
motion, said the time had come for 
making tbe nomination of the man 
who uifdlsputably is -the Democratic 
party's choice, and that nothing could 
be gained for the party or its nominee 
by delay. 

Judge Young had said that his rea- 
son for wanting delay was to give the 
newspapers which had called for a 
ccavontlon on a jirlmary. ample time 
in which to see tliat sentiment for Gov- 
ernor SlaiUey had crystalizcd and 
that the popular demand of Demo- 
cratic voters is for nominstiou hy 
committee. When the ciuestion was 
put on adoiitlon of tbe Uobinson reso- 
lution Judge 'Young voted In the af- 
flrmatlve. 

Chairman Hardin had an opinion 
from Attorney-General Charles H. 
Morris in which he said: "Tbe action 
of a convention or of a primary oth- 
er than the authorised sUte primary 
had no legal effect." The authorized 
state primary was held August 6 In' 
a nutshell, the Attorney-General said, 
tbe only jirocedure for a safe nomina- 
tion, insurlui; the piaciuK of the name 
of the uomluee on tbe Noveuiber l)al- 
lot, was a nomination by the commit- 
tees.

the stock sales if they are to grow as 
we desire they should. 

Several suggestions were offered 
among them being the suggestion that 
a special sale ot pure bred boar jiigs 
be advertised for the October Court 
Sales. Another suggestion belni; that 
the Blocker cattle rale be extenslvily 
advertised for the next sale. The sns- 
eostlon was offered that the Ohio cnl- 
tle men be informed that no rharne 
for Inspection is now being made for 
csttle coming across the river, due to 
the arrangement made by the County 
Court. The Secretary was instructed 
to notify Mr. Robert Hudson of Flem-

report at the next stock sale. 

Mr. Chris Brown was appointed a 
committee to visit the butchers and 
ascertain from thcui^tlie amount of 
cattle they would i>urchase at the 
stock sales next month, this informa- 
tion to be sent In a circular to the

Mr. Hrown Interviewed the butch- 
ers yesterday and received the en- 
couraglut; information that they 
would like to purchase all their 
cattle in Maysville but could also pur- 
chase a good number of hogs. They

use about 100 head of cattle a month 
and would be at the 'stock sales with 
the intention of purcbaslog their re- 
quirements, the first Monday in Octo-

nesB Men. 



The canipniiai for llUn incmherRhlp 
of the Chamber of Commerce which 
is scheduled for the week of Sepletn- 
ber 16 deserves the untiring support 
of every active citlsen interested in 
the advancement of our city and coun- 
ty. \ 

The leadership of the Chamber of 
Commerce has been an important fac- 
tor In the material development of 
Maysville and Mason oounty for sev- 
eral years. It is the clearing house 
for all business activities a directing 
force for crystallzliig public opinion 
and It provide.^ the nmchlnery and the 
means with whleb to promote the best 
interests of the clly. county and state. 

'I'lin work of huihllng cities and de- 
v<'lo|iluK commui\ltlos has been sclen- 
il^frd Ihrouph commercial bodies. The 
illrcctlon of Chambers of Commerce 
has become n recoRnlzed profession. 

Secretaries are being trained 
in commercial school. Departments 
for this purpose have been eatablUh- 
«d by some of the great universities 
like Harvard, Michigan and Wiscon- 
sin. The secretary must be a man ot 
education and adaptability.' He must 
have a wide fund of informi^tton and 
above all things he must be unselflsh 
and brosd enough to think and act 
for the best interest of ever> worthy 
cause In his community. 

Or^'anlzatlon hy business men was 
stirniilatccl vastl\' by Thecidore Itoose- 
vell when he heenme I'resiilent, and 
later l)y President Taff who uave of- 
ficial recognition to Chamber of Com- 
merce. During hs administration the 
Department of Commerce was created 
an(< all commercial bodies in America 
were co-ordinated into the Chamber 
of Commerce of the ITnlted States a 
semi-official body with offices in the 
Riggs building, Washington, over 1,- 
000 local Chambers of Commerce in 
the (wuntry are members of this or- 
cantzatlon. 

Committees representing the N'a- 
tiomil Association of Commercial sec- 
retaries drew the plans for the De- 
partment of Commerce ami actually 
urbanized the .National fbamlier. The 
first was acconiiilishcil at llie Louis- 
ville <-onvcntion In l!tU and the lat- 
ter at ilie Cincinnati convention in 
ini4. The close relations esUblished 
hetween the Maysville Chamber and 
( liter organizations ot the country is 
invaluable. It makes it possible to 
secure confldential information and 
reports from other cities and also to 
Klve members of the local organiza- 
tion a ready Introduction when they 
are visiting these cities. .
